Radio and TV personality Howard Stern has officially joined “America’s Got Talent” as a jugde, replacing CNN host Piers Morgan in the upcoming season of the NBC’s hit talent show.
AGT producers allegedly wanted the King Of All Media to join their team so badly that they decided to move the whole show to New York City to allow Howard to continue working on his radio show.
I cannot wait to see just how far Howard will go with his critics. Fellow judge Howie Mandel, who replaced David Hasselhoff last year, is also excited to welcome his new controversial colleague.
Mandel told TMZ, “I couldn’t be happier. As my Mom always says, you can never have enough Howies.”
And guess who’s not happy with Howard’s new gig? The Parents Television Council claim primetime TV is no place for a guy like Howard Stern, “a performer who is synonymous with shock, profanity and obscenity.”
Oh, please! I’m positive Howard knows how to tame it down and become more appropriate for primetime TV. The guy is controversial, but not stupid.
